Lana Fleiszig and Delia Raizon are sisters based in Melbourne. Together they have written four cookbooks and a cooking column for their local newspaper. Between them they have seven children who are the inspiration behind this book.
'We believe that everyone can cook. We spend many of our weekends with our young children perched on kitchen stools, rolling, mixing and tasting homemade treats,' explained the authors.
'We are self-taught, self-confessed foodies. We think of food with passion and insist that the art of cooking involves a very special ingredient- love. Love for food and love for those you invite to your table.'
Review: It's the middle of the year, we are tied, it's cold and there isn't most of our favourite fruits our out of season. Jam Packed is a pick me up to get you back on track for kids and office lunches. A Jem.
